Racine WI. Filmmakers To Continue To Explore History of the Mafia in Milwaukee

For Immediate Release
Racine WI. Filmmakers To Continue To Explore History of the Mafia in Milwaukee
Filmmakers Wayne Clingman and Jason Love announce the start of preproduction on the next in the series exploring the history of the Mafia in Southeastern Wisconsin and links to The Las Vegas Skim.
As Mr. Clingman tells it, “many of those who have seen our first film on the Milwaukee Mafia, ” Milwaukee Mafia – Frank Balistrieri, The Longest Running Mob Boss in Milwaukee’s History ” have expressed an interest in seeing more on this topic. So after much thought we are going to do just that. The first of this effort will be the rerelease of  ” Milwaukee Mafia – Frank Balistrieri, The Longest Running Mob Boss in Milwaukee’s History ” as an Editor’s Cut where Mr. Love will add content not used in the first release, adding a bit on Felix Anthony “Milwaukee Phil”.
Mr. Clingman goes on to explain “…in the second Film Milwaukee Mob II Frank Balistrieri Goes to Vegas, will tell the story of the alleged role of Frank Balistrieri in the joining of the Mob, The Teamster’s Central States Pension Fund, Fremont Hotel and Casino and the Stardust, as would come out in incitements in Federal Court. You might have seen Casino, the real story is far crazier’
In Milwaukee Mob II we introduce local Mafia Buff Paul Peterson as an on screen spokesmen
Both films are expected to be out by Mid Summer 2019.

Our Thanks Frank Balistrieri,

 

My thought is that anyone who has been to Las Vegas needs to thank Frank Balistrieri, for without his efforts to bring millions of dollars from the Central State Teamster’s Pension Fund to invest, yes invest  for my understanding is that the fund’s investments were profitable in returning a profit to the Pension Fund during the time frame of Mr. Ballistrieri , this investment allowed Casino’s such as The Fremont and The Stardust to exist.

  Fremont      

 

 

The Stardust Hotel

Yes we know that the Mob was in Vegas long before Frank came in, A shame he has not gotten the credit I believe he is due with the creation of the Vegas, we know today.

Interesting to note that in 1976 the fund had about 249. Million investing in Casinos,  getting interest on those loans, in the years to come after the Skim was discovered, the Mob kicked out.

The years of  Junk Bonds used to finance deals in Vegas that would not be the case, for investors   being taken for a ride.

To think that the Mob would help retired Americans with good investments is well, crazy, but perhaps true
